this was to stop obama from being a good president. republicans are hypocritical. men outto throw these of office. we had the worst speaker of the house ever. they spent all this time trying to stop the health-care law which they are not going to stop. we need a jobs bill passed. we need to pass immigration and work on infrastructure. there are a lot of things that could be done. i didn't like the president we had before, but i did not hate him. i think we ever treated a president the way we treated this president. charles from the carolina bringing up house speaker john boehner -- he was pressed in that "washington post" story. paul kane of the washington post notes that the gop was most proud of putting the brake on tougher regulations on business and impeding efforts by president obama to push a more liberal agenda on the country. caller: 520 five representatives comes to $9 million per year. that's a steep price to pay for people who do nothing. they don't want to do nothing. yet the problem is, the republicans say jobs, jobs, jobs. it has never been voted on. that would put a million people

is there are provisions in obama care that only take effect if the states establish these health insurance exchanges, only if there is an exchange, quote, established by the state. now those provisions include the subsidies available through exchanges and the employer mandate, the penalties imposed on employers if they don't offer what the government considers adequate health insurance. 34 states said they're not going to create exchanges and the federal government is operating exchanges in those states so that means those provisions by law are inoperative in those states. employers in those 34 states are exempt from those taxes. >> right. >> but what the the obama administration is doing, is the exact opposite of what the law says. the exact opposite. they are issuing the subsidies and imposing those taxes in those 34 states and their rationale for doing the opposite of what the law says is that's what congress intended. >> but wait a second. we have a congress, we can fact check this with the people who pass the law. they're still there. they're sitting in their seats in that domed building. where are t

to buy health insurance was kentucky, where the democratic governor of kentucky wholeheartedly embraced the whole idea of obama care, right, and who famously, the citizens of kentucky have reaped the benefit. kentucky now leads the nation in new sign-ups for health insurance, and that would be huge anywhere. it is a particularly huge deal for a state whose population is as unhealthful as kentucky's is. i don't mean any offense by it, but kentucky's population ranks at the bottom or toward the bottom of the nation's health ratings in lots and lots and lots of different categories, and kentucky has a lot of uninsured people. and it's the exact same deal two states over in mississippi, but in these two states, in the same part of the country, with the same health problems in their populations and a lot of the same challenges, one of them, kentucky, is now best in the nation in terms of people getting health insurance, and one of them, mississippi, is now worst in the nation, and not because they wouldn't know how to fix their problem. they knew how to fix their problem, but they stopped fi
